A French independent artist whose music moves with the dense sounds of Paris, Tennin is a developing talent with a deft penchant for bringing her own musical universe into our busy, collective reality. An artist who fell into music at the age of twelve through violin and singing classes. Tennin has since gone on to light up the stage of mythical Parisian venue, La Cigale, as well as perform for several Villa Schweppes events in Renne.
After carrying on to conquer stages across Paris, Hamburg, and London, Tennin is no ready to release her first musical project. Proceeding the upcoming EP comes ‘Run’, a creeping, electronic sensation that introduces Tennin as a talent that is both experimental and mysterious in design. An evolving anthem that builds through glitching styles and trip-hop colours, ‘Run’ is an alt-inspired portrait of unique things to come.
Creatively, you would be hard-pressed to compare Tennin to other artists. Her sound is driven, shifting dynamically between shades of James Blake, Tricky, and Massive Attack, giving ‘Run’ an engaging sense of discovery and the unknown, while also giving off subtle hints of comfortable familiarity.
It’s clear that Tennin’s music and songs are journeys through her thoughts, her doubts, and her inner voice, and ‘Run’ is the perfect introduction to her maelstrom of diverse sounds. Its fresh, modern, and treads the fine, effervescent line between deeply human and intriguingly mechanical. A good omen for things to come, ‘Run’ sets a high bar for the rest of Tennin’s début EP.
